To visit Tijuca Rain Forest is always a guarantee of fresh air, mild weather, dazzling views and harmony with nature, besides having the privilege of knowing, in the middle of Rio de Janeiro city, the biggest urban forest replanted by mankind, with an area of almost 4,000 hectares of Atlantic forest. It is undoubtedly, a fundamental piece that makes Rio the Marvelous City.
The Chinese view, has a privileged view of the city. This is probably the most spectacular view of Rio de Janeiro. The only place where you can see Christ the Redeemer and Sugar Loaf simultaneously. A real postcard of the city of Rio de Janeiro. Built between 1902 and 1906 as a tribute to the Chinese slaves who came to plant tea and rice in Brazil.
The Botanical Garden offers a harmonious balance between history, nature and culture. Created by Prince Regent Don Juan VI, this is one of the most beautiful and well-preserved jewels of Colonial Brazil. You will be dazzled by the beauty of the flora and fauna of the place. An unmissable attraction for your visit to Rio de Janeiro.
The last attractions will be one of the highlights of the day, Sugar Loaf Mountain, a very special place, Brazil`s milestone and touristic attraction. Milestone because the city of San Sebastian of Rio de Janeiro was founded at its bottom, and touristic because the inauguration of Sugar Loaf`s tram projected Brazil`s name overseas. It was the first cable car installed in Brazil and the third one in the world. Cable cars are a success!!!
